invad3rjess Today is Armed Forces Day. Be sure to thank every solider or service member you see, not just today, but every time you see one.

menprovement Respect to the armed forces.🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷
Struggle is hard. Trust me. But it can't be something you try to avoid. Instead look forward to it and embrace it. Soon enough you will look back at it and appreciate the experience.

anngilyn Tonight we memorialize the 7 MARSOC marines and 4 National Guard soldiers of MOJO 69 whose Blackhawk crashed into the ocean by the city of Navarre one year ago to the hour at 2021. The men and women of this city, family far and wide, that rallied together was such an incredible sight to behold and be a part of. During the last roll call every flag that was brought forward for each man brought stabbing pain into my heart and my lungs. To know that these hero's paid the ultimate sacrifice and will not be coming home to their loved ones is a hurt I can't even begin to imagine. Remember these men tonight and remember their families in your prayers. God bless the USA.
